Fairmont Normal School. 

Till I.MAS ('. MILLER 


Hon. Thomas C. Miller 

Who in W. \"a. does qo1 know Prof. .Miller? Surely most of the children 
of our State do, for have they not heard liim. in their school rooms, at then 
school closing, at their Sunday School Conventions, telling them, in an agree 
able way, about a richer, cleaner, higher living, about birds and flowers, land- 
scape and home decora l ions, aboul poets, scientists, and statesmen. 

And then the teachers — ami don'1 they as an army, know him. Long be 
fore he was the head of our school system, he had met the teachers for years 
aud years in their institutions, all the way from Hancock to McDowell. To 
these he had given the fullness of his rich experience, of his wide reading, of 
his sympathetic Living. 

And his students know him; the hundreds who have learned of him, in 
the country schools, the city schools, and the University at Morgantown. And 
the thousands of Normal students and graduates, for did he not graduate at 
this school, and hand to those who have finished here and at the five other 
Normals their diplomas, together with words of encouragement ? 

And citizens interested in education in all parts of the U. S. know him, 
for has he not for years spent money, time and energy, to meet those saviors 
of civilization — teachers — in their general meetings in W. Va. in the South 
or West or North, or to represent the higher life of (his Stale in fair or expo- 
sitions, ai St. Louis, Jamestown, or Seattle. 

And then the soldiers know him. He wore the Bine in defense of his 
nation, and at encampments, camp tires, reunions of his comrades, he has 
been there with his word of reminiscence, sympathy or cheer. 

So it is to this citizen, solider and school comrade, we dedicate this num- 
ber of the .Mound, hoping many years of service may be left to be added to 
that long line of years already devoted to the Higher Life of our Native State.

A Tribute to Mollie Virginia Smith 

"Our souls grow fine with the touch divine 
()1 noble natures gone." 

W'lun noble and serviceable lives are nu short in Hie very prime 
of their usefulness it is comforting to know that the influence of 
finch lives abides and to believe that their activities arc but trans 
Terred to a higher .state of existence; that "the music of their 
lives is no wise hushed, but blended so about the throne of God 
thai our poor ears no longer hear it." 

When a dear form that held a beautiful spirit is placed within 
"the low green tent whose curtain never outward swings." and a 
talented, active, useful soul has passed out. then it is that grim 
linblllaf and ;looui\ doubt slink away and filth Mies out in i :yous 
strains- — 

■All thai is. at all. 
Lives ever, past reca 11 : 

Earth changes. 1ml thy soul and (hid stand sure. 
What entered into thee 
Thai was. and is. and shall he: 
Time's wheel runs back, or stops ; 
L'otter and clay endure." 

So we believe that while the earthly career of Mollie Virginia 
Smith is ended, the influence of her useful and noble life will 
endure, inspiring young men and women who sat under her instruc- 
tor In tin 'lass ! .mi and testifying to the value of a life de.ded 
to noble purposes. 

Perhaps no teacher in West Virginia ever had a wider circle of 
close friends than had Miss Smith, numbering among them many of 
the most influential men anil women of the State, to whom the 
announcement of her sudden summons home must have come with 
a shock and a keen sense of personal loss. Loyalty to her friends 
was one of the strong points of Miss Smith's character, and she 
had i 1: ft\ : inception ;f friendship. During hei illness she kept 
by her bedside, and frequently read a little poem beginning: 

"I live for those who love me. 
And for those, who know me true : 
For the heaven that smiles above me, 
And the good thai I can do." 

In Miss Smith's death West Virginia loses an enthusiastic teacher. 
one who had occupied important positions in various sections of the 
state, and who had made friends everywhere among students and 
patrons. Her last position as teacher was that of instructor in 
English in the Fairmont Normal School, where at the same time 
she occupied the position of preceptress of the Woman's Hall. 

endearing herself to the young women by her sympathy and kind- 
liness of spirit. From both of these positions slie resigned because 
of ill healih in June, 1908. 

Associated with Miss Smith in t lie work of the English Depart- 
ment during the last year of her life as a teacher was the writer 
of this sketch, whose joy and solace it is to remember and to 
record the congenial comradeship of those days, the harmony with 
which the work was planned and executed; the helpful conferences, 
with the comparing of notes, and the discussion of students' 
problems. To the writer's ear. in fancy, comes the sound of the 
merry ringing laugh in the face of some ludicrous situation, or the 
quiet, earnest tones as the seriousness of life or the realities of the 
future presented themselves to the two in conference. Ah. how 
true it is. that "When Death, the great reconciler, has come, it is 
never our tenderness that we repent of, but our severity." 

Amidst the stress and strain of the heavy work of the spring 
term the writer's burdens were lightened by the thoughtfumess and 
kindness of Miss Smith. If an interval afforded an opportunity 
'or a hall hour's rest the hospitality of Miss Smith's room was 
always extended, and to that haven the writer could go, where, 
refreshed by a h'\\ minutes' relaxation, could take up again the 
work of the class room. 


and oi 

'those little nameless (not) unreiuembered acts 
love !" 


Miss Smith had a strong and active personality. Of dignified 
tearing with a blight winsome face, gracious in speech and man- 
ner, cheery, and animated in conversation, she was a social favorite, 
and had she so elected might have been a social leader. Tactful 
and resourceful, she was unexcelled as a mistress of ceremonies. 
As one. speaking at her funeral, truthfully said. "Site was a born 

One of the beautiful things in her character was her devotion to 
her mother, of whom she spoke always with tenderness and rever- 
ence. Nor was she less loyal as a sister. 

The secret of her kindly ministrations, her generous sympathy, 
her helpful deeds, is to be found in the Christian faith which she 
espoused and which she exemplified day by day. She loved Tenny- 
son's beautiful lyric. "Crossing the Bar." and faith can leave no 
doubt that she met her "Pilot face to face when she had crossed 
the Bar." and that she joined "the choir invisible, whose music is 
the gladness of the world."

Senior Class History 

The work of ;i historian is to search the records of 
the past, note the vise and fall of nations, and trace the 
onward march of civilization. Some of these records 
are old and musty; in others the few marks that stood 
for writing are almost obliterated, and the truths they 
are supposed to hear are almost undecipherable; while 
still others are not confined to scroll or parchment, but 
lie concealed in the dark recesses of a pyramid or buried 
in the debris of a Pompeii, only to be brought to light 
through long and patient searching^ by the antiquarian. 
From the data thus gathered, and with the help of a 
vivid imagination, the historian weaves a beautiful 
story, dispersing here and there the few grains of truth, 
like golden threads running through a costly fabric. 

In the case of the historian of the class '09, there are 
no moldy records to he searched, no hieroglyphics to 
he read, over which philologists might dispute and 
antiquarians disagree. Neither will his pen tell the 
story of the rise and downfall of a Koine, nor relate 
with thrilling interest the conquests of an Alexander, a 
Caesar, or a Napoleon. To be sure our story is one 
about a conquest, composed of a succession of small 
triumphs, and ending in final victory on Commencement 
day. But how unlike the march of a Napoleon ! The 
path over which he traveled was lined with the bodies 
of his fellow men, and bathed in human gore. He at- 
tempted to rise by crushing out the lives of his people, 
oppressing the weak, and forcing into subjection all 
who should speak contrary to his policies. Our march 
has been a peaceful one — our conquest may not change 
the map of a continent and require a Congress of 
Vienna to rearrange boundary lines, but what is better 
young lives have been changed and brightened, young 
souls have felt the touch of a higher life, and passions 
have been conquered; so that the arch-fiend of man in 
company with all his legions will not be able to rob 
those lives of the fruits of their work. 

A complete history of the class '() ( .) is rather a diffi- 
cult one to write — as all the members of the class were 
not initiated into the school at the same time; neither 
have they spent the four years here. Thus, while other 
historians revel with delight in telling of the wonderful 
transformation from a bunch of "greenies" to the full 
foliage of Seniors, we have no such tale to tell, in view 
of the fact that we have not all spent our Freshman 
years here. To he sure a few of us were "green" in 
every sense of the word, and one was so much so, that 
he still hears that peculiar badge of greatness. 

Each year of our school life the class has been aug 
mented by students who had had the rough exterior 
hewn off. and who had passed the budding season in 
other schools. These additions were not so noticed 
until the opening of the school year in the fall of '(IS, 
when the class found itself increased out of all propor- 
tions above all the preceding classes, by full-fledged 
members from the neighboring High Schools. While 
these new arrivals may have missed a great many 
things, pleasant ami unpleasant, that go to make up a 
four years' stay in the Normal, yet this one year's work 
is a foretaste of what four might he. 

We may not he able to boast of any geniuses in our 
(dass, yet there are certain inherent qualities which 
other (dasses would do well to note; such, for instance, 
as the bull-dog tenacity of a Shurtlelf, the comical acts 
of a Greene, the gymnastic feats of a Barnes or an 
Amos, the governing powers of a Prickett, the attrac- 
tions of a Pearl, the dignity of a Rose, the artistic eye 
of a Crowe, the literary powers of a Roberts, the mathe- 
matical mind of an Aver, the linguistic ability of a 
Peters, the critical eye of a McCuskey, the musical 
talent of a Creel, the frank expression of a Clayton. 
and so on through the whole list, but time ami space 

When we were Freshmen the other classes snubbed 
us; when Sophomores they hardly recognized us as be- 
longing to the school; when Juniors, we came into dis- 
favor with the powers that be and received the honor- 
ary titles of "kickers" and "stubborn class," all of 
which we bore without a groan or grunt, and with 
malice toward none and charity for all, we still sur- 
vived. In our Senior year prestige is coming to us 
slowly, even the Freshmen objecting to march out of 
i lie chapel with us. But amidst it all. our abilities are 
being recognized, and the faculty, even while viewing us 
through critical lenses, find that while at present we 
may have a rough exterior, there lie pure diamonds 
beneath, which some day may be of priceless value to 
the world. Ilowe'er all this may be, our struggle in 
this school will soon close. The cross words of the 
teachers, and the zeros in note books will molest our 
dreams no more. The scoffs and scorns, ridicules and 
rebukes, of the other classes will have passed into 
oblivion never to be recalled. Bu1 the kind admon- 
itions and gentle words spoken, and the lessons learned 
in the hours of adversity as well as prosperity, will 
ever be to us as sweet incense to the memory of our 
teachers, and in the work we shall endeavor to do, and 
the lives we shall endeavor to live, erect an everlasting 
monument to the memory of our beloved Alma .Mater. 

A. F. Gregory. Historian. 

Senior Class Poem 

After the struggles are over. 

And the class gong ceases to beat. 
And no more is heard in the hallways 

The sound of hurrying feet, 
Full many a noble action 

That was done in the days of toil, 
By the Seniors, is half forgotten 

As they enter on life's turmoil. 

Our hearts are tilled with sorrow, 

As we think of the day ai band. 
When the class shall part on the morrow, 

Ne'er more a united band. 
full many an act so tender. 

And many a deed sublime, 
Will remain in our minds forever. 

Ne'er hidden by the sands of time. 

Although we have long since parted. 

There comes to our minds once nunc 
The vision of those departed 

As they looked in the days of yore. 
How oft' we gaze in the firelight, 

When our work for the day is dime.

Junior Class History 

It is now three years since first we landed in Fair- 
mont and turned our steps toward the Normal — a 
place which we have since learned to love so well. 
Before we had been here a week we came To realize 
more or less clearly thai there were ties which bound 
us one to another; that we had come together, that we 
would run the race together; that we would graduate 
together; in short, that we were the (lass of "10. Since 
that lime these lies have been greatly strengthened 
and more clearly defined; our energies have been bent 
together in many enterprises; and now since three 
years have passed into history, it is with a just feeling 
of pride that we look back upon our achievements as 
a idass. 

Since the organization of our class in 1906, wo 
have had our way to fight, our troubles to overcome 
and great obstacles to surmount. We have bravely 
withstood the overbearing and haughty Seniors, have 
suppressed the ever ready and uprising Sophomores 
wdio were so bold as to ask to go with us on our picnic 
excursion last spring. 

They were soon made however to understand that 
they would not be permitted lo accompany us. 

Filled with indignation they began making ar- 
rangements for an excursion of their own. After due 

preparation had been made and all were assembled 
at the Normal some abstacle arose and it was de- 
cided by a unanimous vote that they would go no 
farther. When noon arrived the girls spread their 
baskets in what is now known as "The Old Gym." 
The dainties having been eaten they all shook hands 
and dispersed. 

The Freshmen recognize us as the leading (lass 
of school and when advice or sympathy is wanted they 
fall at our feet. ( ?) 

Our Junior boys and girls are especially notice 
able in their athletic and literary work. Last fall our 
class had more representatives than any other class in 
the Normal's Invincible Football leant which swept the 
opposing teams like chaff before the wind. 

At basket ball, however, the class cannot be said 
to have gained great favor, but their willingness to 
try chances, even in the face of great odds, has given 
no opportunity for an assertion of a lack of "game- 
ness." But in baseball we have the honor of furnish- 
ing the manager, as well as some excellent players. 

These same boys rise by the side of their Junior 
sisters in the literary societies and speak with a 
power and eloquence which proclaims their future 

The talents and vocations of our body arc so di- 
versified as to tit us for all vocations. We are repre- 
sented in the Shakespeare -Club, Classical Club, Ath- 
letic Association. Student Body Association. Orchestra ; 
National Guards, Owl's. Bee's, H. K.'s. V. I>.'s. L. T.'s. 
Y. M. C. A., V. W. 0. A., Lyceum and .Mozart Literary 
Societies. Oniicrom I'si Epsilon and "The Lazy 

The spring term of our school is now closed and 
as we look back over the past we see that our time 
has not been idly spent. We have hung together, 
worked side by side, helping each other and always 
been ready to give a helping hand to an outsider. 

But, now, as joyous spring has come, and the 
grasses shoot upward and the trees are made vocal 
by the songs of birds, we can safely and thankfully say, 
"Well done, ye good and faithful Juniors; ye have 
done well over a few things, therefore in your coming 
year ye shall be rulers over many things."

Sophomore Class History 

Realizing thai a historical fact is of value only 
in its relation to other facts, the author will not bur- 
den you with an indefinite number of hard-to remem- 
ber dates and statistics, as most historians do, but will 
simply give a few truths that will enable you to sec 
the valuable relationship existing between the class 
of "11 and its a Ima mater. 

unusual ability and true worth. Then a division took 
place by which the deserving were divided from the 
undeserving and the faculty said unto the faithful. 
"Friends come up higher; enter into the joys of Sopho- 
moreism.' Thus were left behind all those who could 
not "strike a sufficient pace" to pass them beyond the 
Freshmen milestone. 

West Virginia has contributed to the Fairmont 
Norma 1 hundreds of her choicest young men and young 
women, many of whom have gone forth to till high 
and responsible positions, but no other class ever 
reached its second year in the Fairmont Normal with 
so good a record and so bright a future as the class 
of Nineten Hundred Eleven. 

The class is composed of sixty-five of the best-look- 
ing, best-informed, best-disciplined, and the least -con- 
trolled tudents of the school; students who have passed 
the green stage of Freshmen; who are not blown up 
with the vanity and conceit of Seniors; and who are 
free from the bitter jealousies and daily strifes and 
wrangles of the aspiring, but "sat-on," Juniors. 

When these worthy students ti'-st entered upon 
their Normal School career, they were branded as 
freshmen; hut after serving modestly and diligently 
in those ranks for a few months, they proved their 

After being promoted the newly elected Sopho- 
mores found themselves confronted by a very embar- 
rassing situation. Their predecessors had left Sopho 
nioreism in such an uncertain condition that many be- 
lieved its real spirit to be dead. But in a short time 
the Sophomores were a well organized class, headed by 
efficient officers, and playing such an important part 
in the workings of the school that even the dignified 
I ?) Seniors were forced to "sit up and take notice." 

By the earnest support and co-operation of the 
class of '11, athletics in the school have been raised 
from the low position they formerly occupied to that 
of unusually high standing. 

When students are thusing over a hard fought 
foot-ball, basket-ball or bnse-hal! game their praise is 
always loudest in honor of some Sophomore who, by 
his skillful and timely playing, has won fame for him- 
self and renown for the school. 

If any are amazed a1 the rapid advancement this 
class has made, let llieni observe a few points, wind) 
may help to clear up I lie mystery. Studiousness, cour- 
tesy, originality, leadership, consideration for oth- 
ers, — these are some of the many things which distin- 
guish this class from all others and lead people To 
predict that in June '11 our State will be greatly blest 
by receiving some of the most useful citizens ever grad- 
uate,! from any Normal School. 

Their past success will not hinder their future 
achievements. When they shall have assisted in "tin 
ishing" the Seniors the coming June; their next aim 
will he to property install the helpless Juniors as 
Seniors of Ml); to initiate the Freshmen into the mys- 
teries of relying on self instead of leaning on others; 
to teach the faculty to be independent enough to exist 
even if there were no Sophomore class to act as i 
guide; and finally to march bravely to the front of life's 
battles, there to conquer the wrong and help promote 
all that is noble, grand, and useful for the betterment 
of mankind.

Sophomore Class Poem 

The Sophomore class of nineteen and nine. 
A brighter class you seldom find. 
.Tusl look at the picture of this big class — 
It does not flatter us. but guess we wilt pass. 

There are sixty-five girls and boys. 
Having their troubles and sharing thai 1 .leys 

Though often discouraged, and feeling quite blue, 
We will not give up for we expect to get through. 

Xext year we will take a higher seat : 
Our Senior friends we will not meet — 
Out in the world they make their way, 
We hope to join them some sweet day.

The Old Fairmont Normal 

(With apologies to Samuel Woodworth. I 

How dear to my heart are the thoughts of old Normal, 

When fond recollection presents them to minil 1 
The campus, the class rooms, the fast filling chapel. 

And every loved spot I in school days did find I 
The high towering clock, and the spire far above it. 

The steps and the walks where of evenings we strolled. 
The president's office, the library nigh it. 

And nut on t lie campus where as children we rolled. 
The old Fairmont Normal, the ever-lasting Normal, 

The much thought of Normal where with pleasure we strolled. 

That much thought of Normal 1 hailed as a treasure. 

For often at eve. when my lessons were o'er, 
I found it the source of an exquisite pleasure 

To think of the days that had gone on before. 
How fondly 1 thought of the hours I had spent there. 

How chatting and laughing with friends and companions. 
Who had come from far counties. I did not know where, 

We talked of our past and future intentions ; 
And then of old Normal, the dearest of all. 

The old Fairmont Normal, the ever-lasting Normal. 

The much thought of Normal we e'er will recall. 

Mow pleasant did sound the voice of our teacher. 

When students worked hard, and the lessons prepared! 
Not a full written volumn could tempt us to leave her. 

The kindest and best that our friendship had shared. 
And now far removed from old Normal's protection. 

The thought of the past unconsciously comes. 
As fancy reverts to this school's selection. 

And sighs for those days, with now far-away chums. 
Tin- old Fairmont Normal, the ever-lasting Normal, 

The much thought of Normal in fancy still comes. 

—J. G. L. 

Our Chapel, TVs of Thee 

(With apologies to Samuel Francis Smith. I 

( >ur chapel 'lis of thee. 

Room of sweet memory, 
Of thee we sing. 
Room of our Seniors pride. 
Room where the quitters died ; 

In every student's hide, 

I, el memory cling. 

Let music fill the breeze. 

And ring through campus trees 
Sweet memories song : 
Let Normal tongues awake. 
Let all that hear partake. 

Let all the silence break — 

The sound prolong. 

Our chapel dear to thee. 
Room of sweet memory. 
To thee we sing ; 
Long may our memory dear. 
Be with us ever near. 

And spare the falling tear 
As loud our voices ring.

Student Body History 

The organization in the school known as the 
Student Body Association is one of the innovations 
lirouglit about by our president. Dr. <\ J. < '. Bennett, 
and one the results of which have justified the move- 

The organization was effected on the lirst day 
of November, 1!><)7. and lias been having a success- 
ful career ever since. The object of the Association 
is to unite the students into an effective body in 
order that they may assist in adopting and carrying 
out plans thai are for the best interests of the 
school. Through the Association the students make 
known their desires to the faculty, and randy if ever 
are they refused their requests. 

The officers of the Association consist of a 
President , Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Ser- 
jeant-at-Arms, an Executive Committe composed of 
five members, and two Editors of the Bulletin (a 
paper published by the Normal School.) The main 
business of the Association is done through the 
hands of the Executive Committee. The above offi- 
cers serve for a term of twenty weeks, except the 
members of the Executive Committee ami Editors 
of the Bulletin, who serve for one scholastic year. 
There are two elections each year. In the first elec- 
tion nominations are made on the last Thursday 
in September and the vote is taken one week later. 
In the second, nominations are made on the last 
Thursday in February and the election follows one 
week later. 

Each student is assessed twenty cents per scho- 
lastic year. This money is kept as a reserve fund 
in order to loan without inters! to students, to help 
bear their expenses through school. The Associa 
tion sometimes gives an entertainment, or secures 
the services of a noted lecturer, and the proceeds 
thus secured go to the reserve fund. Thus the stu- 
dents in paying their assessed dues, are making a 
contribution that goes to help one of their number, 
perhaps not so fortunate in money affairs, but yet 
just as worthy and struggling as hard to get an edu- 
cation as the more fortunate one. 

Several important subjects have been considered 
by the students this year, one of these being the adop- 
tion of the honor system by our school. Perhaps 
this looks a little far reaching for a school like ours, 
but we can't see why the student body of the P. S. 
X. S. isn't just as good and just as capable of being 
trusted as the students in any school. If an honor 
system is a good thing for Harvard, or any other- 
school, il would be a good thing for the Normal, 
and we feed sure the trend of things is in the direc- 
tion of adopting it in the near future. 

This is but a mere outline of the organization 
and its object, yet. we hope this is sufficient to show 
the importance of its position in the school and the 
object for which it is working. 

A. F. Gbegory, Historian. 

The Disappointed 

There are songs enough for the hero 

Who dwells on the heights of fame ; 

I sing for the disappointed — 

For those who missed their aim. 

1 sing with a tearful cadence 

For one who stands in the dark, 

A no knows that his last, best arrow, 
lias bounded back from the mark. 

1 sing for the breathless runner. 

The eager, anxious soul. 
Who falls with his strength exhausted. 

Almost in sight of the goal ; 

Foi the hearts that break in silence, 
With a sorrow all unknown, 

For those who need companions. 
Yet walk their ways alone. 

There are song-s enough for the lovers 
Who share love's tender pain : 

I sing for the one whose passion 
Is given all in vain. 

For those whose spirit comrades 
Have missed them on the way. 

I sing, with a heart o'erflowing. 
This minor strain today. 

And I know the Solar system 

.Must somewhere keep in space 

A prize for that spent runner 
Who barely lost the race. 

For the plan would be imperfect 
Unless it held some sphere 

That paid for the toil and talent 
And love that are wasted here. 

-Ella Wheeler Wilcox. 


There is no chance, no destiny, no fate. 
Car. circumvent or hinder or control 
The firm resolve of a determined soul. 
Gifts count for nothing: will alone is great. 
All things give way before i(, soon or late. 
Y\ hat obstacle can stay the mighty force 
Of the sea-seeking river in its course. 
Or cause the ascending orb of day to wait? 

Each well-born soul must win what it deserves. 

Let the fool prate of luck. The fortunate 

Is he whose purpose never swerves. 

Whose slightest action or inaction serves 

The one great aim. 

Why, even Death stands si ill. 

And waits an hour sometimes for such a will. 

— Ella Wheler Wileox. 

Y. M. C. A. 

This has been a very successful year in the V. M. 
C. A. work. The enrollment has increased during 
the year from a few more than the president, vice 
president, secretary and treasurer to more than 
thirty members. 

In June, 1908, the Association sent two of it; 
members, X. G. .Matthew and A. F. Gregory, to tin 
Student's Bible Conference at Magara-ori-tke-Lake, 
Canada In October two delegates were sent to Co 
lumbus, Ohio, for the International Student's Bibh 
Conference. When the State Y. M. C. A. Conven 
tion was held at Morgantown our Association was 
represented by Prof. C. L. Stooksberry, Prof. FT. F 
Rogers. O. L. Armentrout, A. F. Gregory, C. It. Lee 
J. H. Taylor. L. A. Stark and X. G. .Matthew. For 
this year the Association is planning to send two o 
three delegates to the Student's Conference at Xi; 
gara-ori-the-Lake, Canada, that is to be held in Jun< 

The work has been heartily supported by the fac- 
ulty; three of them. Or. Bennett, Prof. Stooksberry 
and Prof. Rogers taking an active part.

A few years ago, the young women of this school. 
feeling the need of an organization which would pro- 
mote their spiritual growth, established the Young 
Women's Christian Association. 

Since the world needs to-day the girl who has 
developed every side of her nature, and has fitted 
herself to help humanity the Association aims to de- 
velop the spiritual nature and to help the girls in 
their Christian work and so send them hack to their 
homes better prepared for the manifold duties of 

While the mission of the Association is to help 
and strengthen the j^irls yet the association needs 
their support and hearty co-operation in order that 
its influence may reach every home represented in 
oui- school. Bul let not »irls think when they give 
I heir support that they will give and receive noth- 
ing in return for besides the help there is much 
pleasure derived from association with Christian 

"Xot by might, nor by power, but my my spirit, 
saith the Lord of Hosts."

The "Dorm" 

of all tilings either great or small 

The "I>orm" sure am the besl of all. 

As in the parlors and on the porch outside 

Frolic Seniors and Freshmen side by side. 

Fair damsels, prim in taste and brigb.1 of eye 
Capture some boy's heart — at least they try — 
Then at night to the pale grey moon 
Each begs for a beaux ere' the 15th of June. 

To the jolly sweet singers who sit on the Mound 

And crone love songs, profuse and profound. 

The girls throw notes and candy and prunes. 

Ere the preceptress they hear on her way to their rooms. 

On the tennis court in the warm spring days 
Love games are played in the blistering rays ; 
Unmindful of lessons, free from all care. 
One heart strikes another, and finds solace there. 

Into the dining room is the place to spy. 
And see the girls work a green young guy : 
They feed him on pickles, bananas and pie. 
Then chuckle and laugh as if they would die. 

Above all this life at the dear old "Dorm" 
Stands the solemn tower clock, monitor, to wain 
All struggling awkwards that the time is nigh 
When they must vamoose and say good-bye. 

Eicvity bids me not tarry here longer, 
Yet as the pen ceases, love claims grow stronger. 
While in a Senior's tired brain, memories run rile. 
Rehearsing details and scenes, the best of his life. 

So here's farewell. "Old Dorm," your dwellers all — 

Though as I depart my heart seems to fall. 

Fall with a pang that wrings forth a sigh : 

Oh : we can't mingle longer — good-bve. good-bve ! 

—H. H. G.

This club was organized during the Spring terns 
of 1908, by the Senior and Junior girls, for the purpose 
of having a pleasant social time. 

Since the Senior and Junior (dasses are so large 
this year, it was decided To limit the number to 
ei <ih teen. 

The flower which was adopted by the club is the 
Black-eyed Susan, and the colors, old gold and black. 

The emblem is a broom with a "B" engraved on 
1 he handle.

Shakespeare Club 

The Shakespeare Club, organized on October 22, 
1908, ;ii the home of .Mrs. X. R. C. Morrow, has con 
tinned its existence throughout the year, meeting 
wceklv. except for an occasional interruption. A1 its 
tirst meeting Mrs. .Morrow was elected leader. Miss 
Bertha Clayton secretary, and without other officers 
t he work of the club began. 

The program of exercises adopted for the year was as 
follows: Music, quotations, reading of the minutes. 
reading or study of the play for a specified time, after 
which the telling of jokes closed the program. 

The club assembled at seven o'clock, usually on 
Thursday evening, and continued in session for two 
hours. Two plays were studied. Hamlet and the Mer- 
chant of \ enice. 

Twenty-five students were identified with the (dub. 
some of them throughout the year, others for a part of 
the time only. It is a matter of profound regret that 
the faces of several who were members of the club do 
not appear in our picture. 

Besides the profit derived from a study of the 
world's greatest literary artist, much pleasure resulted 
from the social intercourse, and friendships which may 
be eternal were formed.

New Features 



The Mound of 1909 is rigidly and absolutely barred 
against misrepresentations, only truthful articles being 

For days more or less our germanic and immortal 
minds have been alert to gather something elevating 
and harmonizing with our great school year, yet what 
we have missed would make many volumes more or less 
like The Mound of '08. As years roll by and our Mound 
becomes more artistic so will the teachers appreciate 
the truth we uphold : "Truth crushed to earth will rise 
again," hence, this year The Mound is mighty for truth 
and veracity. 

Little drops of truth, little grains of sense — make 
this might}' Mound — and our training school. 

In the beginning names were few and the choice 
theroef easy, hut now in this electric age we have no 
time to suit our fancy, hence we use any old thing — ■ 
The Mound. 

The Mound is a great incentive to keep our school 
in fine demeanor. We look our best when posing for 
our pictures — look at us. We envy each other in our 
athletics — and yet worsted. We like to sit around the 

mound and view the dormitory and college building 
with its inviting scholarships. We always will wish 
that our school days were to return and how we crave 
The Mound. 

There is a limit at which forbearance ceases to be a 
virtue; also our mound builders do not wish to em- 
barrass any by their "know it all," but attribute all we 
are or ever hope to be to your kindly sufferance and for- 
bearance — and if we do not say all you think we ought, 
then be charitable and say we said all we knew. 

Our patrons will be eager to have a copy of The 
Mound, to give it a place in their library under other 
magazines and papers to buoy them up and keep them 
from the perusal of critics. The Mound will increase 
in circulation and become very popular and no doubt 
the State Solons will appropriate much money to buy 
the copyright I when we are the Solons). 

Finally, we begin with The Mound and our last 
resting place will be in the mound, and then may it be 
truthfully said by all : "Well done, thou good and 
faithful builders — go deeper."

First Prize Story 

"Wun day I wuz a-feedin' the chickens and calves 
and a-hnntin' the eggs, all to wnnce, a thot struck me 
purty forcibel like (jist as thots do sum times) that our 
son Zachariah wuz old enutt' to git sum edification. 
He wuz gittin' tall and ganglin' like but very quiet and 
peaceful like, and if he wuz karrot headed and freckle 
faced, he wuz the best speller on Koons Run and wuz 
purty good at figgers." 

"So I sez to pa, sez 1, 'Josiah Allen, dew you know 
thai yer son Zachariah has got to git sum edification? 
The time has now come fer him to blossum out into a 
full-blewn rose, as the poetry people would say, and 
now we kin efford to send him ter schule and see whot 
kind of stuff he is made in - .' Waal, pa he jist scratched 
his bead and looked at me sort uv kuii-founded like, 
and sez nothin'. Now my old man is a great thinker, 
so after keerful kalculation he sez, sez he: 'Waal, Sa- 
mantha, as he is our only son, and sein' as how you've 
got yer head sot on his learnin' sum nollege, I guess we 
kin send him to schule fer a while.' 

"Now that this important question wuz settled, 
the next thing whot fuzzled my brain wuz the schule. 
Now a-days there is so many places of ackomplish- 
munts, fer we saw in Iookin' over our weakly paper, 
The Fairmont Free Press, that ther wuz skidds uv 
schules in Fairmont and that it would lie a konsider- 
abel undertakin' to seleck the most appropriut. I got 
the paper and went over the list. 

"First there wuz the knllered schule, which Zacha- 
riah objected to in the beginnin' as he didn't kere much 
fer kullers. Then there wuz the ward schules, first, 
seckond, fourth and fifth, which Josiah sez were pieces 
uv schules, and we intended fer our son to git his 
larnin' at a whole schule bv itself. Then there wuz the 

high schule, the moddul schule. and the Normal schule. 
After konsiderabel argyment we decided to seleck the 
Normal schule because it looked nice and had a clock 
on ((>]) to tell the time and Zachariah wouldn't need a 
watch, but the dear lad jist as leave gone ter the mod- 
dul schule, but I vetoed that to wnnce, as it was sum 
new tangled thing I didn't know much about. 

"So wun niornin' bright and early, we sot out fer 
town in the best buck-board. We arrived in good time 
fer we had to bye Zachariah a descent outfit, so we per- 
ceeded ter wnn uv the up-to-date furnisher stores and 
hot a fine pair uv korderroys, a boughton shirt and a 
red necktie. 'Now,' sez pa, 'Samantha, you kin talk 
and perswade so much bettern me. so you take Zackie 
over to the schule.' 

"After konsiderabel enquirin' we found the place 
and walked rite in. Iimnejately sum verry perlite 
fatherly gentleman kum runnin' up to us with a peece 
uv measurin' stick in wun hand and a Geometry book 
in i other, and sez very logicaly, 'Would you like to see 
the superintendent of the training schule?' Waal, as 
I lied never met this lady, I jist gave him an important 
look and sez, 'I would like to see the overseer uv this 
shebang.' Waal, he did look puzzzled fer a minit and 
then skratchin' the top uv his head whare thar wuz no 
hare, he sez, "Maybe you'd like to see Dr. Bennet.' 
'Law no,' sez I, 'we're not sick and don't want to see no 
doctor, but w'ed be powerful obleeged to you if you 
could direck us to the man who has charge uv this in- 
stertushun uv learnin'.' He sez, 'you go strait up 
stares and turn to yer left and thar you will find the-? 

"By this time a konsiderabel number uv smart Iookin' 
bovs and gurls, come crowin' round, and the bovs 

looked at Zachariab kind uv offish like, but the gurls 
giggled and smiled at liim very pleasin' like. My! but 
Zachariah is goin' to be popular. Waal, we betook our- 
selves upstairs as Q. E. D. and turned to the left and 
thar we war but whar wuz the President? Jist about 
this time a hansum man cum dasliin' out into the ball 
a-callin' 'Major! Major!' or sum other officer in this 
editicationel army. He stopped very suddenly when 
he saw us, and would yon believe it, lie cum rite over to 
ns and shook hands, and sez in anser to our enqueary, 
'Yes, I am the president, and frankly now, I am very 
glad to meet yon. Cum rite into my office.' Here 
Zachariah bad to dew a lot uv writin' on a kard fer tn 
dollers and then sez he, 'Take thet to Mr. Stokesberry 
in room number 14 and be will give yer somethin' ter 

"Now rite here Zackie displayed some uv bis home 
trainin' by performin' sum veiy perlite bowin' and 
lookin' powerful dignified. We perceaded accordin' ter 
direckshuns and when we arrived al room number 14 
we decided ther rresidenf bed maid a mistake in ther 
name as we bed never heard uv this name before, so 
sez 1. '.Mr. Huckleberry, here's my sone Zachariab 
wants ter u i 1 sum edditication from you." Sez he to 
Zackie. 'Did yer ever hev Latin er hear uv Uarverd?' 
Zackie calculated he haddent. then sez he, 'Git a Poller 
and Spaniel and lake yer kard across the hall to Mrs. 
Morrow.' We perceeded across the hall and seiz T. 
'Mrs. Tomorrow. Mr. Huckleberry sent us over.' She sez. 
I am very glad to see you.' then givin' Zackie an in- 
dulgent glance sez, 'Do you speak English er read Lit- 
eratoor?' Now as Zackie spoke ruther good English 
(altho his great grandfather wuz Irish) but he'd never 
loured further than Fairnioni he sez, 'Yes inarm, no 
suv ' She seemed real pleazed and sez, 'Reed and Kel- 
log.' We bed never heerd uv this company before, but 
supposed it wuz the place to buy the culler fer the span- 
iel. So she scribbled on the kard and sez, 'Take this to 
the training teacher.' This seemed to be a tip top plan 
to look around over the wonderful institution uv 
learnin" so we started down stares. 

"Xo one seemed to notice ns now as all the boys 
and gurls wuz bizzy talkin' on little settees around the 
koruers so we jist kep rite on till we reached a door at 
the foot uv the stares and there a very jolly lookin' gen- 
tleman lookin' very much like the first one we met, only 
he wuz diffurent, come out and sez, 'Howdy,' and then 
he axed Zackie if he had ever had electricity r physicks. 
Zackie bowed very gracefully fer he had plenty uv both 
to hum. Wun time he wus over to old Doc Firestones 
and touched his shockin' machine and he bed about 
all the electricity he wanted. Waal, he handed us a 
kard and sez. "Take this to Miss About the Histry 

"We didn't want to miss anything so we hurried 
up, but accidently got to the wrong door, but a lady 
walkin' along the hall cum to our rescue and enquired 
if we wuz lookin' fer sumboddy. Whereupon 1 axplain- 
ed I would be much obleeged if I could find the training 
teacher. She smiled and sez. "I am the training 
teacher. Are you lookin" fer the Moddul schule?' I 
looked at her with sum confussion and sez, 'I am 
pleased to meet you but I would be much obleeged to 
you not to mention that other subject. My sone Zachi- 
liah is goin" to git his eiblifical ion rite here in this 
Normal Schule and if you go to advertisin' any other 
outside schule to me I shall go rite up stares and report 
•to the Doctor Overseer that there is sum one advertisin' 
against his bizness.' It took her a long time to explane 
the conneckslmn and I he workin' uv the two sehules, 
but I found 1 wuz mistaken and by way uv apologizin' 
perduced my kard to her, and she axed Zackie if he had 
ever had geography, arithmetic er nature stud v. 

''By this time the pore lad wuz so tired he sez. 'T 
bed nhysics. electricity, measles, whoopin' cough and 
small-pox ami please don't think I ought to hev to take 
anything more.' So she looked at him kindly like and 
ced she thought he'd had enough, loo. 

"We left in a few minutes To hunt up a boardin' 
house and thus ended Zachariah's first day at this great 
schule; the great beginnin' uv a perdigious kareer." 

—Blanche Crowe, 'Oil. 


(First Prize Poem.) 

lis Spring agvn the ;;iass is green 
And gay young flowers may lie seen: 
The fair, white blossoms on the trees 
Send delightful perfumes on I lie breeze. 

And children, coming home from school. 
Stop by the brook, where it is cool, 
To watch the fishes swim along, 
And hear the robin sing his song. 

Among the willows is their nest. 
The place they really lo'"e (he best: 
And here she sits the whole day long. 
And listens to the male bird's song. 

The flowers are coming, more and more. 
And as we roam the woodlands o'er 
We see white li Hies all around. 
And roses carpeting the ground. 

The bee is bnsy all the day. 
As o'er the fields he takes his way. 
And hang's o'er clovers — red and white. 
And gathers sweets with all his might. 

Now as berry time is drawing nigh. 
Away the merry children hie 
Acioss the meadows — full of fun. 
To gather berries in the sun. 

Spring is the merriest time of year. 
\\ hen birds and berries and flowers are here. 
And the earth is covered with carpet green. 
And the clear blue sky may lie seen. 

— Luna Wright. 

An Apostrophe 

(Second Prize Poem.) 

Awake, dead soul, where is thy breath? 

Breathe warm air. not chilly death. 

Arouse thy passions, stir thy life. 

Develop strength — prepare for strife. 

If triumphant o'er strife we expect to be. 

We must have souls unfettered, free. 

The foe will come, killing, dread. 

A" his paths filled with dead. 

If we'd escape disgrace, defeat. 

SI rive ever on, blow not retreat. 

But eyes on enemy firmly placed. 

Armor girded, helmet laced. 

And guarded by shields of metal bright. 

When honored by us with truth and right. 

The enemy's lance will wound vis not 

Nor leave our name afoul with blot. 

Then slothful soul, awake and work. 

Nor rightful task e'er slight or shirk. 

But in the list bring all your strength

Grasping An Opportunity 

Second Prize Story 

It was one of those beautiful, bright days in early 
May. when the earth is newly covered with its carpet of 
velvety green, with here and there various colored flow- 
ers peeping out, like the heads of the newly hatched 
brood from under their mother's wing. The trees, too. 
were wearing a foliage so fresh and tender that one 
could hardly conceive of their ever becoming the barren 
skeleton-like objects they had been only so few days 
before. The birds were flitting to and fro among the 
green branches, their newly adopted coats glistening in 
the bright rays of sunlight that crept in through the 
small openings among the haves, as though they could 
never become old and soiled. As they liitted about and 
piped from every tree-top their thrilling and melodious 
songs, it seemed as if the whole world were tilled with 
joy and happiness. 

Nearby on either side, high hills or mountains, as 
they were called by the country folk near about, rose 
majestically toward the sky, and with the trees that 
crowned each peak, formed a most beautiful and pic- 
turesque horizon. Between these hills lay a quiet, 
peaceful valley, through which ran a small stream; its 
waters dancing and sparkling in the sunlight as if 
studded with the most costly diamonds. 

.Midway between the crest and summit of the hills 
on the left, stood a little old log cabin, known as the 
Herman home. Its occupants were Mrs. Herman and 
her son. .John, a tall, awkward fellow of twenty-two. 
They were poor and had worked very hard since the 
death of .Mr. Herman several years before, in order to 
keep their home and the few acres of land which they 
owned, free from mortgage. However, at this time 
they had succeeded in saving a few dollars and it was 
decided that .John should visit his uncle, who lived at 
Mapleville, eighty-five miles away. Both mother and 
son looked forward with great pleasure to what they 

considered the greatest event of John's narrow, ham- 
pered life. At last the day for his departure arrived. 
John emerged from the doorway wearing a cap two 
sizes too small for him, his trousers reaching only half- 
way from his knees to his shoe tops, his coat squeezing 
his shoulders into so small a space that they looked no 
broader than those of a ten-year-old boy, while his 
sleeves were drawn almost to his elbows. His mother 
kissed him good-bye and told him to be a good boy, for 
to her he was still a boy. 

Thus attired, John started out on his eighty-five 
mile walk. His mind was full of plans for the future, 
and as he journeyed on farther and farther from home, 
new sights continually came in the range of his obser- 
vation and with each one came a phase of life whose 
existence John had never dreamed. On and on he 
went, until he came to the summit of a hill from which 
he could see the whole country for miles around. Be- 
ing hot and fatigued from his long asceut, he sat down 
in the shade of a wide-spreading oak to rest and take 
a view of the surrounding landscape. He sat for a 
long time looking and thinking, but nothing came into 
his sight to attract his attention from the country 
about him, until all at once he heard a loud shriek far 
away to his right, and turning to discover the source, 
he saw a train winding its way, slowly, as it looked to 
him, down the valley. John had read and heard about 
steam engines and their wonderful power to pull long 
strings of cars, but this was the first time he had ever 
had the privilege of seeing one, even from a distance. 

Every other thought left his mind instantly, and 
he began thinking ami imagining how the train ap- 
peared when one was close to it; what it was that gave 
it such wonderful power; how the engineer controlled 
it; what it was that caused it to cling to the rails, and 
numerous other questions. His eyes were riveted upon 

the train until the intervening hills completely bid it 

from his sight. 

Then resuming his journey, his thoughts were cen- 
tered upon the locomotive and nothing he saw along the 
road diverted his attention from this one subject, ex- 
cept as occasionally the road branched in different 
directions and he was obliged to inquire which one to 
follow. He was thinking what a great achievement it 
must be for one to become an engineer, and wondering 
if he could ever attain that position. 

He at last reached Mapleville, and after making 
several inquiries, succeeded in finding his uncle's home. 
Not expecting him, naturally his uncle's household were 
greatly surprised to see him. He spent several pleas- 
ant days in Mapleville, however, the greater part of 
which was spent around the railroad station watching 
the trains coming and going. 

At last he decided to apply for a position as fire- 
man, hardly expecting to secure the place. Soon after 
presenting his application and taking the examination, 
he started back to the obi log cabin on the mountain 
side. Only the week before, as he ventured into a 
strange country and among people he did not know, it 
had seemed a long and tiresome journey, but as he 
returned, his mind was too much absorbed to think of 
fatigue. A new field had opened up to him, new op- 
portunities had presented themselves, and his whole 
soul was thrilled with the hope of attaining that which 
he considered the greatest achievement in life, namely, 
that of becoming a railroad engineer. 

When he reached home his mother met him with 
outstretched arms, expecting to find him as he had left 
her, but alas, his whole being was changed. Xot that 
he was less kind or considerate of his mother's wants, 
but he had become absorbed in things other than those 
connected with farm life. For a time he did not tell 
his mother of his recent action. He knew that she 
would not consent for him to go on the road, but never- 

theless, his mind was made up, and if his application 
was accepted, nothing could prevent his going, so he 
finally mustered up enough courage to tell her. 

Meantime he had received a letter stating that the 
appointment had been given him. and that they wished 
him to come as soon as possible. As he had expected, 
his mother begged and pleaded with him not to go, but 
without avail. He had chosen his life's work and noth- 
ing could alter his decision. 

Accordingly, three days later John went to Maple- 
ville, where, after securing a boarding place and mak- 
ing other necessary arrangements, he reported at the 
general office for duty. The following day he was 
called out for his first run. Of course it was all new 
to him and for several days the fireman and engineer 
wei'e kept busy explaining to him the mechanism of the 
engine. But when an explanation was made it never 
became necessary to repeat it. Thus he learned so rap- 
idly that soon he was trusted to make the run alone. 
He had many thrilling experiences and several times 
was in extreme danger, but fortunately he escaped each 
time. He did his work so faithfully that, at the end of 
his fourth year, he was promoted to the position of 
engineer, with the recommendation that he was the 
most reliable man on the road. 

John was now the youngest engineer in the com- 
pany's employ, but notwithstanding this fact, he was 
always chosen to make the dangerous runs and to make 
up time. One day about a year after his promotion, 
John was sent out on a one hundred and twenty mile 
run and instructed to make up fifty minutes of lost 
time. He climbed into the cab and seating himself by 
the throttle, rang the bell witli one hand and holding 
the throttle with the other, John started on the most 
dangerous run he had ever made, and one that was 
destined to bring about his early promotion. The road 
was rough and crooked, and many times it looked as 
though the cars would leave the track, but on and on, 

faster and faster they sped, around curves and bends so 
short that at times the caboose seemed to be ahead of 
the engine. John sat motionless, his steady hand grip- 
ping the throttle, his eyes steadily fixed on the track 
ahead, and every muscle in his body drawn to its high- 
est tension. Suddenly as lie dashed around a bend he 
saw a little child playing on the track a short distance 
ahead. He rang the bell, and blew the whistle, but the 
child paid no attention to the signals. What must he 
do? He could not stop the terrific speed of the train 
in such a short distance. There was not a moment to 

lose. Suddenly he stepped from his cab. and like a 
flash sprang to the cow-catcher of the engine, just as 
the engine was about to grind the child under its mas- 
sive wheels. John gripping a bar with one hand, 
swung down ami caught the child with the other and 
raising it in the air. saved it from a horrible death. 
With the child in his arms he made his way back to the 
cab, and continuing his wild run. arrived at his desti- 
nation exactly on the minute. 

■/nines (1. LanJiam, 00. 

The Abductor 

Ever since I could remember, my greatest wish has 
been that I might travel alone; free from a dictating 
chaperon, at liberty to carry into execution my slight- 
est whim. So when a friend of mine, living in Penn- 
sylvania, invited me to pay her a visit, most gladly did 
I accept the invitation. 

On the memorable morning of departure I was the 
very last person to board the train, and would have 
missed it entirely had not the conductor lifted me bod- 
ily and carried me onto the platform. Then I rushed 
into the car to secure a seat. They were all occupied 
except one, and on half of it sat a sour-faced, bare- 
headed old man. However, I put my suit case down by 
his, and proceeded to enjoy the view from the window. 

Soon the conductor came in, and announced, in a 
loud voice, the next stopping place, and at the same 
time the old man beside me put his nose in my face and 
said, "Young lady, have you seen anything of my hat?" 
"No, sir," I answered, "1 haven't had the pleasure of 
seeing you wear a hat yet." 

He looked at me wrathfullv and then said in a 
thin, rasping, tone of voice. "Children of your age 
should speak more respectfully to their elders. In my 
days a young chit of a girl like yon was not allowed to 
gad about over the country alone." 

Then he turned to the porter and demanded his hat. 
Just then the conductor's voice was heard to call mil, 
"All aboard," and the old man was forced to make his 
exit, meanwhile declaring he would sue the company, 
and that every one on the car were suspected thieves 
until his hat was found. 

1 now rested my head against the back of the seat, 
in order to more fully enjoy myself, and would have 
done so had not the crying of a little baby attracted my 
attention. The mother's face was care-worn and the 

baby's crying seemed to trouble her greatly. Wishing 
to help her I gave the baby a piece of candy. Straight- 
way we were friends. Again my attention was drawn to 
the woman when she pulled my sleeve and whispered, 
"Miss, would you please take care of my baby for a few 
minutes, while I get a drink — I feel sick." "(Hi, yes, 
I love babies,' I replied. And soon I was engrossed 
with the duties of a nurse. 

1 attended to the baby for half an hour; ten more 
minutes passed by. Still the mother had not made her 
appearance. To add to my troubles, the conductor 
called out the station where I wished to stop. 1 asked 
three women in succession if they would take care of 
the baby until the mother came. But apparently they 
all thought the baby belonged to me, so T no longer 
expected aid from them. 

The train soon stopped. Believing the mother had 
abandoned her child to me, I arose preparatory to going 
from the car. As 1 stooped to get my suit case, my 
eyes fell upon an object that fairly made" my blood run 
cold. There on the seat was that old man's hat mashed 
Hatter than a pancake. I had been using it for a cush- 
ion all the time. Thinking that if anyone saw the hat 
1 would be branded as a thief, I picked it up, put it 
between the baby and myself and with this load made 
my way from the train. As I took my suit case from 
the conductor's hands, that hat dropped from its place 
of concealment. The conductor stared at me aghast, 
for he knew to whom the hat belonged. 

I was beginning to wish the earth would open and 
sw allow me, when oh! blessed sight, I saw the baby's 
mother sitting in the waiting room. Pushing through 
the crowd to the astonished woman, I thrust the baby 
into her unwilling arms, and with the words "I am so 
glad I found you," rushed down the platform where my 
friend was waiting for me with a buggy. Scrambling 

into it I told her to drive like mad, if she did not wish 
me to be arrested for stealing- an old man's hat. 

At last, in the cool of the evening, we reached my 
friend's home. Immediately 1 was shown to my room 
to dress for dinner. After the day's troubles 1 still 
had one comforting thought left, and that was that I 
had a suit ease full of beautiful dresses. lint when T 
opened the suit case, my eyes almost refused to accept 
the sight before them. Instead of seeing a soft pink 
silk dress. I was stunned by I he glare of a red flannel 
shirt, while on the other side protruded the toes of a 
pair of leather boots. All The regret 1 had left for 
taking the old man's hat now vanished, for \ knew lie 
had been well repaid for the loss id' his hat. Fortu- 
nately my friend's clothes just tit me. so I need not 
worry about dresses. 

The next morning, when I opened the paper, T at 
last wished that I had never attempted to travel alone, 
for covering the entire top of the front page were these 
words: "Daring Kidnaper in the Person of a Young 
Girl." Tt seems that a woman had been taken ill while 
on the Pittsburg train and had given her baby to a 
young girl to take care of while she went out. When 
she finally returned the girl and child were both miss- 
ing. The conductor remembered the girt getting off of 
the train at a small station, but did not remember 
much about her except that she acted very suspiciously 
while on the train, and had even stolen an old man's 
hat. It was his opinion the girl was crazy. I told my 
trouble to my friend, and between ourselves, we agreed 
that I was to remain quiet until they traced the crime 
to me. I remained in the house for a week, not daring 

to put my head from the window, but each day scan- 
ning the papers eagerly. At last my anxiety was re- 
moved when we read that the baby had been found in 
the care of a woman living ne^r t' ••> home of my friend. 
The woman's story ran something like this. On the 
day of the kidnaping she had been waiting for a friend 
who was coming on the Pittsburg train. The train had 
scarcely stopped, when a young yiid ran up to her and 
violently llirnst the baby into her arms. Before she 
could raise an alarm, the train was on its way. Being- 
fond of children, and uoon the advice of the sinrole coun- 
try people about the station, she decided to accept this 
human gift, and adont the child as her own. Put when 
she beard of the kidnaping, she was sure that the miss- 
ing child was in her keeping, and upon further inquiry 
had returned it to the unhappy mother. 

The paper added by way of an editorial that it was 
the belief of the Pinkertons, who were working on the 
case, that the young girl in blue was no other than a 
famous New York adventuress. It further stated that 
the young girl had really intended to steal the baby, 
but by her suspicious actions had attracted the atten- 
tion of the other passengers and had thus been detered 
from carrying her evil intentions into execution. The 
abductor was thought to have again boarded the train, 
after leaving the baby at this wayside station, and had 
afterwards escaped unnoticed. 

After the excitement died away I returned home a 
repentant and wiser girl, while a reward of five thou 
sand dollars was being offered for mv capture, and the 
detectives of all the Eastern cities were searching for a 
clue to my whereabouts.

Heads covered with curls and full of rats, 

Hall Brats ! Hall Brats ! 

Midnight Wanderings of Chucfye Dear 

(With apologies to II. W. Longfellow.) 

Listen my children and you shall hear 
Of the midnight wanderings of Chuckie dear ; 
How on the campus he did stray. 
Squandering his studious time away. 

Close up to the hall Chuck and D. Willie did crawl, 

When up flew a window, and out popped a head, 

"Is that you, Chuck?" a sweet voice said. 

"Yes, Loella, it is I ; I'll go to the restaurant and get you some pie.' 

"Nay," said Loella. 'you stay near by, 
And send D. Willie to get the pie." 
"All right," Chuch said, "111 stand near by," 
And off trotted I). Willie after the pie. 

While on his errand D. Willie sped, 
Chuck by the window softly said — 
"Loella. dear, is it pie you love. 
Or is it Chuck, your little turtle dove?" 

Jrst at that moment Chuck did spy, 
A large policeman drawing nigh. 
"Oh, Loella, what shall I do? 
It's now too late to make a skiddo." 

"Be brave, dear Chuck." Loella cried. 
As the cop walked un to Chuckle's side ; 
Down went the window, all hope had fled. 
Thought Chuck. "I'll live on water and bread." 

"Why be you here?" the cop did cry. 
Said Chuck, "I go to school near by." 
Then up over the wall so very high 
Appeared D. Willie bringing the pie. 

As to the hall I). Willie drew near 
Another policeman did appear. 
D. Willie's frame did shake with fear. 
As the copper grabbed him by the ear. 

As they stood in the dark and talked it over, 
Said the cops, 'We'll go around to the door." 
Chuck rang the bell, filled with dismay, 
And after a while down came Miss Rae. 

A Midnight Session 

They were crowded around the table. 
Not a soul would dare to sleep ; 

It was midnight in Harry G.'s room. 
And the game was getting deep. 

'Tis a fearful thing in playing. 

To attempt to draw a straight — 

And to hear the dealer shouting. 

"See yer five and raise yer eight." 

So they shuddered there in silence, 
For the dealer held a flush, 

And Curry held a full house. 

While four aces hid my blush. 

And thus they sat at midnight, 

Four enraptured poker players. 

"We are lost." Bowlegs shouted, 

"Prof. Mercer's on the stairs." 

Then the dealer bet a quarter, 

And Ulysses raised him ten ; 

But Barnsie saw him fifty better — 
Jack-pot reached the limit then. 

Then Amos kissed that little jack-pot, 
As he put it in his vest ; 

And they closed that little session, 

When the full moon went to rest. 

A lengthy confab had they all. 

Back went Miss Rae into the hall : 

Said one of the cops, "Now boys, don't bawl, 

But hereafter keep shy of the woman's hall.'' 

That night as they knelt by their little bed, 
Both boys in concert softly said : 
"God bless those cops and Miss Rae, too : 
And may they always be true blue. Amen." 

If any one should doubt this story. 
Let them inquire at the dormitory.

Making Good 

In the mercantile line these 
\\ (~y 1 l(~)Od days is a strenuous business. 
O It means furnishing clean, up- 

to-date goods at the lowest prices consistent with high quality. It 
means advertising these goods with absolute honesty and no exag- 
geration. And, furthermore, it means employing a sales force to 
whom it is a pleasure to wait on you and to treat you courteously, 
whether you come with the intention of purchasing or of looking 
and comparing prices. All this represents our idea of "^Caking 
Good, " and each day we strive to add aiother step in our march 
toward perfection in Quality, Price, Honesty, and Service
